                            ALASKA STATE LEGISLATURE                           
                    NINETEENTH LEGISLATURE - SECOND SESSION                    
                                                                               
Juneau, Alaska                       Friday                                    
                                                                               
                                Ninety-sixth Day                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
Pursuant to adjournment the Senate was called to order by President            
Pearce at 11:02 a.m.                                                           
                                                                               
The roll showed twenty members present.  Senator Salo was                      
excused from a call of the Senate after 12:30 p.m. today.                      
                                                                               
The prayer was offered by the Chaplain, the Reverend Rich                      
Zimmerman of the Chapel by the Lake Church.  Senator Duncan                    
moved and asked unanimous consent that the prayer be spread.                   
Without objection, it was so ordered.                                          
                                                                               
God of Peace and Hope:                                                         
                                                                               
What an encouragement it has been to see this process of                       
government carried out day by day.  We see people who care                     
enough about our state to get involved.  We see this Senate tackling           
tough issues and giving their all to find solutions that help people.          
                                                                               
And yet, even as we rejoice in the hope that this process brings, we           
remember that there are many people in this state who suffer right             
now, even as we pray.  There are some who suffer anxiety because               
of lack of work.  Some are in distress through mental illness.  Some           
are feeling hopeless because they are trapped in cycles of substance           
abuse.  Some are victims of crime.  Some are facing serious illness.           
Some are caught in situations of domestic abuse and violence.  Some            
are locked in penitentiaries and are in despair due to the weight of           
the guilt of their crimes.  Some have recently buried loved ones.              
Some are just simply lonely.                                                   
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                      3187

Many of these problems are beyond our ability to effect change, O              
God.  We lift these neighbors to Your care, asking that Your peace             
and hope would make a difference in their situations.  And may the             
laws enacted in this session of the legislature do good to those who           
need help.  May the efforts of our government lift burdens from all            
people, encourage those who are faltering, and give hope to the                
hopeless.                                                                      
                                                                               
                                                                               
I thank You for the opportunity given to me this week to observe               
this process and to lift before You these concerns in prayer.  Bless           
this body with great progress today as they complete another week              
of work.  Grant them rest and renewal over the weekend.  Bring                 
them back together again next week with a renewed sense of purpose             
and a determination to seek the very best for this state.  And be              
with them throughout this legislative session, blessing them until             
their labors are complete.                                       Amen.
